There’s comedy among the dustbins with this classic, top-rated series from the late 60s/early 70s. Created by celebrated writer Jack Rosenthal (THE EVACUEES), the series revolves around four misfits and their affectionately-named dustbin van – “Thunderbird 3”. Rosenthal would go on to write the highly-successful comedy series THE LOVERS and create one of ITV’s most watched programmes – LONDON’S BURNING. THE DUSTBINMEN’s working-class humour outraged Mary Whitehouse at the time it was broadcast and it could probably be rightly described as a less-adult and more amusing precursor to the early-90s hit series COMMON AS MUCK. Included in this set are all remaining episodes (two episodes are missing from the final series), the pilot play and the Christmas Special sketch.

This special will appeal to anyone who likes Jack Rosenthal’s work, 60/70s sit-coms and archive television fans.
